What to Do with Leftover Candy Corn

Any ideas? I had a Halloween party for the neighborhood kids today, and most parents who were told to bring candy brought a couple of bags of candy corn. I'm inundated.

  1. The other day, there was a spot on Regis and Kelly about using candy corn to decorate. There were kissing balls with candy corn hot-glued to styrofoam balls, garlands, branches hung with little buds formed from candy corn, etc. Info is on their website. To make them permanent, a craft varnish must be applied.

    1. Freeze it, but do leave one bag out to go stale (very good this way) and then graze on it over the next few weeks. I keep a bag in my car throughout the month of October. It's really too sweet to do anything with it other than eat it plain, and since it is very cheap, it would not be wrong to throw it out after you get sick of it. Or, as greygarious suggests, you can use it as a craft material.

          Haha, I'm definitely not a candy corn lover, but that martini is about the best way to consume it I've ever seen!

          Love candy corn, I saw a candy corn cocktail, it was a layered cocktail with cream float.

          1. Mix the candy corn with peanuts and Sugar Babies and you have a mix that tastes like a Salted Nut Roll.
